|This is easily the best sounding steel string I have ever heard. No joke. It has a solid sitka spruce top, ebony fretboard, mahogany neck, rosewood pick guard, abalone rosette, and solid Brazilian rosewood back and sides...and in case you did not know, Brazilian rosewood is the 'holy grail' of tone woods. What's more, I have the official CITES paperwork from Taylor so that it's legal. To find a Brazilian rosewood guitar these days with CITES legal paperwork is nearly impossible, so this is a great catch. The Brazilian rosewood version was a limited edition for 2015.|
This guitar is in perfect condition. It has never left my studio (humidity controlled), and only been used on professional recordings. I bought it new from Andertons (UK), for 6000 euros. It is in perfect condition...not a single mark or ding or any indication of use whatsoever!
The Taylor also has the Expression System 2 pickup system, which sounds fantastic. Here's what Taylor says about that:
Assertive Pickups: The Expression System 2
The in-house Expression System 2 cartridge comes with quite puristic controls. A volume, bass and treble control can be found on the frame. But here, too, it was considered, because the low level of technical equipment ensures a largely free acoustic resonance. The Expression System 2 delivers a surprisingly lively sound with a lot of brilliance and dynamics.
Last but not least, an original Taylor hard shell case is included.
